History of Conflict and War Collection

A collection of outstanding titles on the history of war and conflict in the twentieth century

 

The History of Conflict and War collection was built up over the years by donations from friends and associates of the Centre for the Study of Modern Conflict. 

The Centre, originally named the Centre for Second World War studies, was co-founded by Dr Paul Addison and Jeremy Crang in 1996. In 2005 Professor James F. McMillan assumed directorship and re-titled it the Centre for the Study of the Two World Wars. Following Professor McMillan's death in 2010, Professor Donald Bloxham and Dr. Pertti Ahonen became the Director and Deputy Director of the Centre and renamed it The Centre for the Study of Modern Conflict.  

The Centre was closed down in June 2017. In its place, the School has established the Centre for the Study of Modern and Contemporary History. This brings together some of the expertise of the old centre within a much broader remit. The new centre is open to all students and staff who work in any area of modern history (post-1750). It is structured around a specific yearly theme or themes, which provide the guiding thread for its seminar series, public events and postdoctoral fellowship programme. Please visit the Centre for the Study of Modern and Contemporary History website for full details about how you can get involved in the activities of the new centre.
